's not what you're look at. mitt romney was just talking the jargon of someone who does private equity and it's just not -- at the same time, though, in the last year he's told us that he can create jobs and knows the economy better because of his bain cap pal experience. >> but michelle, let me ask you, harvest companies -- buy companies and harvest them, where can you even find the most generous stretch you can, find job creation? >> it is unfortunate imagery and it's a rarafied field and this is the downside to the way romney has made his entire campaign, kind of a referendum on obama' private sector experience, he talks up a good game, you know, kind of inflating what any president would be able to do on the job creation front. so, you know, you run across something like this and of course people are going to jump on it because romney himself has made job creation and his ability to do that central to his entire candidacy. >> but, david, let's be fair. he does care. he, romney, has some compassion in an interview with nbc, he showed how he cared by promoting romney care. look at this. >>
and stands by them today. good debate talk tomorrow night. mitt romney says he's going to repeal obama care and replace it with something to keep people from being uninsured. but an analysis from the commonwealth fund shows mitt romney would leave 72 million more people uninsured, 12 million higher than before obama care. rece recently mitt romney said his campaign never ran any intentionally false advertising. we have been ab chutely spot-on, he said. any time there's anything that's been a miss we correct it or remove it. i kind of talk like romney, don't i? this is coming from a guy whose first campaign ad against barack obama presented a quote about john mccain and pretended that president obama was saying it about himself. they defended the ad as honest. romney is running on his business create. he says he created 100,000 jobs as the ce ork as bain. he claimed he had no involvement with managing bain after 1999. but wait a minute. sec filings show him as the ceo and sole stake holder in the company for three additional years. now during those years, what happened? thousands of people w
to get america moving again. that is what romney talks about. when sigh him do that, i feel pretty good about because i think he is on the right path. you may not hear it through the mega phone of national media and he should do it more. >> paul: i paid attention to your race in 2010. you ran against a candidate ted strickland very much like the president is, tried to associate with you wall street and big banks. you beat him. how can mitt romney beat a campaign like that in ohio? >> he's got to be here paul. he was in high hometown not long ago. he had an overflow crowd that was amazing. i've been around a lot of national campaigns. when you are out with him. you see the enthusiasm. look the most important thing for candidate running for president is to get people to understand that he understands their problems or she understands their problems and knows how to fix them. jim roads the fourth term governor of ohio, all that matters in ohio is the size of this wallet. sf it's getting fatter, they will do well. if it is small are, they will not do well. romney needs to make the case so p
governor romney talking about he don't need those people and the last time i checked we were we the people. and that's who the president is fighting for. we the people in eye yoe, we the people in wisconsin, we the people all across this country. governor romney has revealed exactly who he is and we've got to believe that he doesn't care about the 47% in this nation. >> watching the romney-ryan romance come apart in such an ugly way, the stench. i mean, here's another quote from politico. after paul ryan showed a powerpoint presentation to a crowd in orlando on saturday. the romney campaign was furious but ryan reportedly said let the ryan be ryan and let the stench be the stench. >> he didn't really say that, did he? >> the politico, they have people in the field. >> first of all, i will have you know there's nothing that fires up a crowd like a good powerpoint presentation. so kudos to paul ryan. it's kind of funny that mitt romney wouldn't embrace the powerpoint more. since in massachusetts he was the powerpoint guy and brought out the white board to do the medicare solvent under me whi
john elway. it was the only scheduled talk. it was a stealth bomber in the background there. romney tried to tamp down expectations in the back. >> people want to know who is going to win? who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make? in my view, it's not so much winning or losing or even the people themselves. it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> playing off the enthusiastic crowd. romney had lines for the base. may even tested out a few zingers we might hear wednesday night. >> this is a home to focus on the family which is committed to preserving the foundation of america. we have to get the pipe laine from canada if i have to build it myself. >> it will kill america's entrepreneurship. >> that's the first time, by the way, romney talked about card check on the stump since the primaries. others call it the employee free choice act. it was a priority four years ago. it never passed because a few democ
. >> earlier this year, before he was the official nominee, you criticized mitt romney, you talked about his shortkomgtcome failure to connect with people as a candidate. that criticism has not gone away. and then had you his secretly recorded speech at a fundraiser we talked about the 47%. believing that they were victims. the obama campaign has made an ad that puts some pictures to those words. i want to play a portion of it and get you to respond. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. who are depend upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them. who believe that they're entitled to health care and to food, to housing. to, you name it. they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people, i'll never fix that. that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> governor, how does he overcome that? how does anybody buy that he cares about 100% of the country after those remarks? >> first of all, david, let's be c
romney. you talked about his shortcomings, a failure to connect with people as a candidate. that criticism has not gone away. and then you had his secretly recorded speech at a fundraiser where he talked about the 47% believing that they were victims much. the obama campaign made an ad that puts some pictures to those words. i want to play a portion of it and get you to respond. >> there are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe that government has responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. and they will vote for this president no matter what. and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince those people that they should take responsibility for their own lives. >> how will anybody buy that he cares about 100% of the country after those remarks? >> first of all, david, where i am, i couldn't see the images in the ad. i could just hear the voiceover so i can't comment on
. >> yes. >> and i think mitt romney spoke from his heart when he talked about 47% of the american people basically being parasites. >> you are the psychologist, so only you can make a comment about that. but i'm so glad you mentioned paul ryan because he was on the trail today. and he was dispatched to colorado. where he took a question from a woman, who makes $350 every two weeks and cannot get off welfare. here's the conclusion to his rather lengthy insubstantial answer. >> a hand up a hand out. teach a man to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> don't feed the fish? feed the 5,000? what is this man talking about? >> well a trite almost insultingnessinsult ing answer to a serious question. there are struggling americans looking for real answers. all they're hearing from romney/ryan is tax cuts for the wealthy. let this trickle down system that's failed us in the past let's go back to that try it at least one more time. let's enrich our wealthy friends. and it's not selling in ohio, martin. and i don't believe it's going to sell across t
want to talk about that today. >> that was bill clinton slyly reminding the country about mitt romney's tax returns. about 30 minutes before romney took the stage at the clinton global initiative in new york city. mitt romney did not talk about his tax returns at the clinton event today, but hillary clinton did when she spoke there yesterday. >> one of the issues that i have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner. especially from the elites in every country. you know, i'm out of american politics, but it is a fact that around the world the elites of every country are making money. there are rich people everywhere. and yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries. >> she is so good. at being out of politics. she's so out of politics. bill clinton double underlined that point today on "morning joe." >> i think it's worth pointing out that of the 33 countries in the oecd, the group of well theier nations, only chile and >> i think it's worth pointing out that of the 33 countries in the oecd, the group of well theier nations, on
no connection between that mitt romney and this mitt romney. you've talked about the remarkable things he's done on wall street. what he di with bain capital, what a great american success d y as well, there's a huge disconnect between that mitt romney and the mitt romney that we're seeing bumblg around on the campaign trail. it seems that while presidential elections elevate some like reagan and clinton, they diminish others like mitt romney. o fundamentally kind of technocrats and businesspeople look at what he did in massachusetts and say he got a lot of stuff done, worked with the rest of the government, et cetera, et cetera, got health care done, this is how government should function,ut athat ppen outheel obvio cagnil tt he was pushed into places, into corners, into positions that he may or may not actually believe in, but which portray him and create an image of him in very, very different light. and so now we are left with this kindf bum eling candidate w isn't even really sure wtis sedut saying he wanted to repeal the bush tax cuts. then he had his own 20% tax rate cut with no way to
now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees, says the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is
, we talk about the 47% video, i'm hearing more and more people in the romney campaign as every day goes by, they understand more and more that they made a huge mistake with that libyan press conference. i'm not going to say that it was sort of that september 15th moment, the economy is sound, but john mccain last time, but i can't tell you how many pollsters are telling me that that was -- it made him look unpresidential. "the wall street journal" leading with their editorial today, "the libya debacle." the more we're finding out about benghazi, the more it looks like a gross security failure. and you know, something the romney campaign told me, this is the biggest mistake we made on libya. if you give the media a chance to talk about politics or policy, they'll talk about politics every time. and we get out in front of it, so all everybody talked about those first few days was the politics of it. but the policy looks, willie, more and more like a gross security failure. you've got so many warnings coming in and so many warnings that were ignored. now the administration, the lead o
're already talking about debate expectations for next week and kevin, who is a senior romney advisor, described the president as cy young, one of the great all-time pitchers in baseball. you can't really set expectations higher than that for your opponent, suzanne. >> we know that president obama actually won ohio 51-47%. why are they actually thinking that they've got some wiggle room here, that they've got some influence? what do they think they can do in the weeks ahead? >> they're going to hit this economic message as much as possible. we heard mitt romney talking about that earlier this morning. these polls that have come out do show that he still has an advantage over the president when it comes to who it best managed the debt and the deficit, who would cut the deficit, and so we heard mitt romney saying earlier this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this
, by the way, yioimth iact oftday. his own callous comments, romney has his own new ad out talking straight to the camera. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycck. reri ain poverty than when president obama took office, and 15 milliomore are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. >> i'm sorry, that was actually a little poetic license by jimmy kimmelve buom really does care. just listen as he explained his compassionate side to nbc's ron mott last night. >> don't forget, i got erybody in my state insured, 100 % of te kids in our s h hh ra i dot think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> wow, what a great argument for defending the president a's affordable care act. romney went straight up onto the podium and told us what he really thinks of helping to cover theuninred. o ce is really exhibit number one of the president's political philosophy, and that is that government knows better
in 2008 and hasn't gotten done and mitt romney talking about the plan he has to take this country forward. so i think it's an opportunity for both candidates to talk about where they want this country to head, the vision they have. i think unfortunately, you're going to have president obama make a lot of excuses as to why, when he was on that stage four years ago, not much of what he ever said was going to happen occurred. >> you know, on the subject of winning and losing, chris christie, big supporter of mitt romney, has come out and said he expects a big win for governor romney in this debate. we talked to brad woodhouse yesterday from the democratic side. this is what he said about christie's comments. >> i think he set the bar high for mitt romney, and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean, he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he's not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out, he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security. to protect benefits instead of cutting them. the bar is really high for him. i think chris c
, but something always sticks. today we got this bit of mitt romney talking about the emergency landing last week of a plane that at the time was carrying his wife, ann romney. >> i appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. i don't think she knows how worried some of us were. when you have a fire in an aircraft, there's no place to go exactly. and you can't find any oxygen from outside the care craft because the windows don't open. it's a real problem. >> it's a real problem that the windows don't roll down on airplanes? is it also a problem that guns don't shoot backwards through the barrel this way? why don't the windows roll down? i don't think he was joking because he couldn't possibly be joking about his wife being in a plane crash. so did he -- has he never seen gold finger? >> right? maybe mr. romney was joking when he said it was a real problem he couldn't get the windows to roll down in airplanes when he was joking about scary involving his wife. you wouldn't think a guy would joke about. maybe he meant only planes flying at low altitudes? we don't know. regardless o
weeks for 15 minute infomecials and talk about the choices between obama or romney and speak in serious venues. get away from the rallies and talk to, you know, the cincinnati chamber of commerce. he should be -- lou: excuse me? wait a minute, brad, with all do respect, that would be an electric moment in electoral history if he were to move to the chamber of commerce. i respect the judgment mightily, but that one -- >> he needs to speak to serious people at serious venues to talk policy. you don't get that across at a rally or across to the people in a 30 second sound bite. lou: the polls, do they agree on the strengths and weaknesses? do they reveal that? you talk about the seriousness of a moment in which it's captured for free media, but the reality is that there are strengths and weaknesses, it seems, at work here, otherwise, there would be, i suppose, an outright tie between the two. chris, are there stengths that are being revealed here? weaknesses revealed on all of the polls? >> yeah, here's something to keep very much in mind. here's how the electorat looks different in 2008 a
jersey governor talks. chris christie thinks romney will turn the election upside down, his words, and that it will be a brand new race after the showdown in denver. no surprise romney's people ran right away from chris christie's comments pretty quickly. they're trying to lower expectations, which is how candidates normally approach these things. but let's suppose for a minute that chris christie's right. what would it take for mitt romney to win the debate and change the storyline of this election? 50 million people are expected to tune in. many think tomorrow night is romney's last best chance to turn things around. he's been practicing for the debate for months on top of the practice he got in the almost two dozen primary debates. but here's the challenge, romney has to come off as likable, authentic and show that he can coect with the voters. we've been hearing that for months, haven't we? apparently it's still a challenge for him. a piece in the daily beast suggests the only thing romney can do to change the race in a meaningful way is to get specific about his ideas. so far
on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all just six weeks out from the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >>
the national economy. why is romney talking about deficits, given that we have unemployment crisis? they looked at states that they thought of as a target, new hampshire. this is an issue that resonates with swing voters. i think that is one thing to keep in mind. you have these strands that cannot always cohere in a way that works for you if you are candid. that is one thing to keep in mind. it is interesting to think about -- and again when you have the stagnation for much of the country including a lot of these folks, you have household income growth for people at the high end. what does that mean? one thing it means is that if you look at snap enrollment, people talk about how increase in three years. it increased since 2000. medicaid. when bill clinton gave his talk at the democratic national convention he was incredibly shrewd because he did not talk about medicare. why did he not talk about medicare? medicare is not the real difference in terms of numbers between these two campaigns. it really is medicaid. when you look at medicaid and who benefits from medicaid, it is a lot of white, wo
should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care when he sd he is going to repeal all of the affordable care act then say i'm going to keep some parts of it. so again, it's sort of like dude, exactly what are you trying to do here? i think the difference between george w. bush, he ran as a compassionate conservative and he had his conservative base locked up. romney's dealing with people whobds we're not really trusting you. if you're the obama campaign, what jim messina should do, he should play the video of alec baldwin and glenn ross saying always be closing. the one thing you cannot understand, a poll's a poll. folks have not cast any ballots, so the obama campaign should stay aggressive. stay absolutely aggressive because if you just sit back a little bit, you could cause this race to narrow. that's the last thing they want. >> thanks very much to both of you. and later in our hour, our guest, a man who once said mormonism is a cult said this race is not over and he's got one thing he says mitt romney to do to t
